OS 35 – Overnight Update - Saturday 10th September 2022
The situation remains stable onboard, with no significant developments overnight.
A large multiagency response involving boom deployments and a coordinated clean-up strategy has ensured Gibraltar’s beaches are safe and clean on National Day.
Response teams have been carrying out assessments of our beaches since the early hours and will carry out patrols on the shorelines throughout the day. There is now a significantly less amount of oil showing up on Gibraltar’s beaches and any small globules that are found are being dealt with as soon as possible.
The southern half of the shoreline at Little Bay remains closed to the public as clean-up operations of the area continues. Bathers can still make use of the beach right up to the northern end. At present, all of Gibraltar’s beaches are flying the yellow flag.
